A West Point man was seriously injured Thursday after a vehicle fell on him as he was working.
Emergency personnel were dispatched about 1:30 p.m. Thursday to a residence at 1015 E. Brame Avenue in West Point in response to a possible vehicle falling.
West Point Fire Department Battalion Chief Ken Wilbourne said firefighters arrived to discover a resident, whose name has not been released, trapped beneath a vehicle under which he’d been working. Wilbourne said the car had been sitting on a jack when the jack collapsed.
WPFD responders used the “jaws of life” to extract the man from beneath the vehicle, according to Wilbourne. He was taken to North Mississippi Medical Center in West Point for treatment.
No further details were available as of press time Thursday.
